Justin Bieber’s April Fools Joke Gone Wrong

On Monday, Justin Bieber surprised his fans with an Instagram post of a sonogram, which lead people to believe he was making a pregnancy announcement with his wife Hailey Baldwin.

Justin also made another post shortly after that showed Hailey sitting on an exam table getting a ultrasound, saying “If you thought it was April Fools”. Which helped fool any skeptics who thought it was a prank, because initially fans were excited for the news and were congratulating the couple.

The discussion around the post revolved around how women can have problems with infertility and making jokes about getting pregnant can be insensitive to the women that deal with infertility. On Tuesday, Justin made another Instagram post about the backlash and apologized for any pain the prank may of caused.

There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS. I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children. A lot of people I know, their first go to prank on April fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction. But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended. I truly don’t want anyone to be hurt by a prank.. it’s like when I shoved cake in my little sisters face for her birthday expecting her to laugh but she cried. You sometimes just don’t know what will hurt someone’s feelings not to compare pregnancy with cake in the face but it’s just to paint the picture of not knowing what will offend. Some might have laughed but some were offended .. I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice. #prankster #dennisthemenace #sorry #truly
